The Asset Management Program is managed by a specialized inhouse operations office and enables us to achieve optimal outcomes from MDOT SHA’s maintenance and capital investments while following federal guidance. Asset lifecycle managers implement best practices to comply with regulations, improve our performance, and support sound decision-making throughout the infrastructure’s lifespan. This ensures the longevity of our assets and provides a safe, well-maintained, reliable highway system.
The Asset Management Program is supported by stakeholders to promote a consistent, focused approach to managing our asset portfolio and to ensure alignment with federal, state, and agency policies. The program is also championed by MDOT SHA executives and guided by leadership, staff and partners across all offices, districts and departments. Asset management is a team effort and staff at all levels of the agency enhance our existing asset management culture.
The MDOT SHA Asset Management Office (AMO) was created in 2021 under the Deputy Administrator for Operations in Hanover. The AMO provides strategic asset management guidance, resources and tools to the agency while integrating the agency’s asset portfolio. With a “system of systems” approach, the AMO works to deliver optimized performance outcomes for infrastructure sustainability. This structure empowers the MDOT SHA workforce to innovate from the bottom up and focuses on three major functions: Asset Data Operations, Asset Optimization and Asset Preservation Delivery.
